THERE'S no denying that 2020 has been a year of dashed dreams – after all, this was supposed to be the year we were treated to not one but TWO series of Love Island.
But as the coronavirus crisis took hold, ITV cancelled the beloved summer dating show in May – and who can believe it's been six whole MONTHS since the show last graced our screens?
But while we've spent most of lockdown in our comfiest tracksuits without a scrap of make-up, the Love Island girls of 2020 have undergone some seriously dramatic transformations.
Although there's no denying the girls always look glam in the villa with their spray tans, lash lifts and killer clothes, they've got professional makeup artists and hairstylists at their beck and call once they've been catapulted to stardom.
Here Fabulous Digital takes a look back at the 2020 cast's amazing transformations from when they entered the villa to now.
Before flying out to South Africa in January, Shaughna Phillips admitted to having a couple of cosmetic procedures ahead of her television debut.
She told Grazia: "I’ve been having my lips done for a good few years now so it will take more than a few months of lockdown to get those to deflate."
Earlier this month, Shaughna said she'd been having "tweakments" at Derma Plus Aesthetics since 2016 – including Botox and lip filler.
While promoting her InTheStyle range, the reality star opts to style her naturally straight hair in big bouncy waves and is rarely pictured without a smokey metallic eye.
Earlier this month, Shaughan revealed she'd had lipsuction on her legs for the first time after being diagnosed with lipoedema which causes an abnormal build-up of fat cells in the legs, thighs and buttocks.
Paige Turley went on to win the series with boyfriend Finn Tapp – and since the show wrapped in February, the aspiring singer has upped the glam in her everyday life.
The star has worked with hair extension company Beauty Works Online and is rarely pictured without her signature fake lashes.
After getting "lazy" in the villa, Paige told Women's Health she now does three workouts a week -including yoga and PT sessions.
She may not have won the Love Island crown – but Siannise Fudge is now happily living with boyfriend Luke T in a flat in South West London.
Before she entered the villa, Siannise worked as a beauty consultant and often shows off her glamorous makeup looks on Instagram.
In January, the star – who has denied having any cosmetic work done – told Glamour: "I want girls to look at me and go, ‘I haven’t had anything done and she hasn’t had anything done’ – you don’t have to have it done.
"Lip fillers and things like that are very popular now, but I just think I’m happy the way I am. I would like other girls to look at me and think ‘she’s just like me."
But if she wants to fake fuller looking lips, Siannise told Look Fantastic before she went into the villa that she uses a darker shade of liner underneath her lipstick. Note taken.
When Jess Gale entered the villa, she was accompanied by her sister Eve – who was eliminated in the first week.
The 20-year-old was famous for her bleach blonde locks during the show – but in the past six months, she's changed it to a slightly darker shade.
Twins Eve and Jess were unrecognisable in throwback snaps from 2015 leading fans to speculate they've had surgical procedures – but the pair have never admitting to have any cosmetic work done.
Demi Jones was known for her impeccable fashion and beauty taste in the villa – and over the past six months, she's partnered with Project Lip to create her own lip-plumping gloss.
She told the Mail: "I've never had filler before in my life, so this is really nice and a confidence-boost.
"I'm only 21 and there's so much pressure to get surgery done, so this is a nice pick-me up."
"I understand why others would want surgery, but it's just not for me. I just like to be myself as much as possible."
The star regularly posts uber glam selfies on Instagram showing off her makeup skills and embraced her natural red hair.
Fresh-faced Molly Smith caused quite a stir when she caught Callum's eye in Casa Amor.
Six months on, the 25-year-old influencer has gained 760k followers and regularly posts pictures of her bronzed physique online.
The star is still sporting long blonde hair and – like Paige – has partnered with Beauty Works to flog their extensions.
In July, The Sun exclusively revealed that Molly had signed six figure deal with clothing brand I Saw It First – which includes 52 pieces starting from £5.
Miss England contestant Rebecca Gormley sent shockwaves through the villa when she arrived dressed as a Greek goddess and gave each of the boys a lap dance.
These days, the star – who is still dating Biggs – is sporting braided hair which sparked a "blackfishing" debate earlier this week.
Recruitment consultant Eva Zapico confidently described herself as a "10/10" when she entered Casa Amor – and six months on, that still stands.
The star is still happily loved up wit Nas and sporting her signature curly hair – but will occasionally opt for a straight bouncy blow dry.
She previously said: "My hair is my best feature – it’s long, thick and bright."
